I have to admit–surprising.
Of course, the first thing one needs to point out is that the term “analyst” applies to Danchenko only in so far as it applies to all of us who have a legitimate anal orifice. Other than that, this loser Danchenko has a typical background and career of political “scientists” and paid BSer (possibly prostituting himself as an asset to a variety of intel and governmental services). Generally, the guy is yet another iteration of “freedom loving” Russians and is in the same league as Masha Gessen, Julia Ioffe or such “expert” in Russia as Rebekah Koffler whose only Raison D’etre of their “professional” activity is to supply propaganda narratives about Russia to their US masters. Now, one of them, it seems, got busted for:
Let me translate it to you into normal human language: this Danchenko dude (as is the case with MI-6 creep Steele) simply lied to FBI that the Democratic Party, namely Hillary Clinton and Obama’s political machines, were directly involved into subversion of the Constitution of the United States and a shitload of many other laws, by means of providing fake information involving foreign power by means of avatars, whose “credibility” should have been enhanced by the fact that Danchenko is “Russian” and Steele allegedly had some contacts in Moscow, which was a full BS. Steele would have been figured out by good level FSB operative in 15 minutes, because Russia Steele knew in early 1990s and Russia of 2016, let alone of 2021–are two different countries.
So, pop-corn time. I will, however, reiterate–no matter how I despise Trump, NO person deserves to have his name, however flawed, to be dragged through the dirt most of which was a perverted fantasy straight out of Clinton and Obama houses and which accelerated already fast decline of the United States and completely discredited already tarnished American political system. This is an indictment to the whole political system:
Whole Russiagate was a fabrication by Democrats, but Danchenko is important, especially when his background is considered, in illustrating what a pile of delirious shit US foreign policy towards Russia is because it gets its “info” from such “experts”, both inside Russia and inside the US. The result is totally expected–an utter disaster. And as always, don’t tell me that I didn’t warn you.
P.S. Congratulations to Virginia, and especially on this wonderful lieutenant-governor elect Winsome Sears. Black community should be truly proud of such a woman. She is inspiring.
